Jenn Asks: What do you think of "Safety Shorts"? Are they a must?

Reader Ally dropped me an email asking the following question:

I think I'm the only one among my friends who wear "safety" shorts* when I'm wearing a skirt. My friends thinks that I'm weird and always laugh at me. Honestly I'm tempted to stop wearing it because of them, and also because of our hot Malaysian weather, but I just don't feel safe without it. What do you think? Should I stop wearing it?




Well, if you ask me, I would say just go with whichever makes you more comfortable, as cliché as it sounds. If you feel more comfortable and "secure" wearing them, then just go ahead and wear them regardless of what your friends say. After all, these shorts are not meant for the public eye anyways right? Lol. But if you decide to do without, please be very careful when climbing up a flight of stairs or when you are exiting your vehicle! :P

What do you think, ladies? Do you think that "safety shorts" are a necessity?


* "Safety shorts" are typically short, spandex-y tights that many ladies wear under their skirts to prevent "accidental exposures".

  1. Oh God I'm not really bothered with these things hah hah hah. Probably because I rarely wear any skirts that are above the knee. Psst. Where did you find those safety shorts?

  2. Whenever I wear dresses or skirts even if they're 1 inch above my knee, I still wear shorts underneath. The shorts that I wear are thin, comfortable and undetectable. I feel much safer with them, especially knowing that there are creepy people who take pictures of girls while they're wearing skirts and riding up the escalators. -_-

  3. I definitely feel safer wearing them under short dresses but it's rare with skirts since I hate it if they are visible at the top of the skirt. Also, I don't feel secure if I can't feel the skirt due to the thickness of the shorts.

  4. I don't wear it. So I would say no.

  5. Ever since I was young I've worn "safety" shorts under shorter skirts. I had ONE terrible incident in high school and I never, EVER will let it happen again. Only time I don't is if the skirt is long OR if the skirt is very form fitting (which means the risk is lowered AND it's too tight to fit shorts, haha)

  7. Joyce: This is precisely why I wear safety shorts too!! I've seen how some lecherous men gather under an escalator just to have a peek up somebody's skirt... a friend's friend even caught a man red-handed when he tried to take an upskirt shot of her... and the most surprising part was she wasn't wearing anything too short - she was wearing a midi skirt! >.<

  9. Jyoan: ic! Yes, i would agree that it is not a necessity. Like I said, as long as one is comfortable and appropriate, just go with whichever you like! :)

  15. PB: Lol! I'm no Marilyn, so I'll stick granny bloomers! Hehehehe!! XD Seriously though, whether it is a pair of safety shorts or a pair of nice underwear, it doesn't matter because both are not meant for the public eye anyways! :D
